Drawing -Board Geometry Author:Fredric G. Higbee, Prof. of Engineering Drawing, The Univ. of Iowa Preface — The material in this book is a highly condensed and straightforward presentation of those problems which engineering draftsmen should understand about relationships involving points, lines, planes, and surfaces, — The problems are presented in two languages: a written statement and its graphical translation. Becasue most students are "ey... more »e minded," emphesis is placed on the graphical presentation and the written material is condensed to essentials.
The book is frankly intended as a workbook. Its format and arrangement have been carefully planned to that end. Students should be expected and directed to mark up the text and use colored pencils on the text drawings. By such methods of study, a drawing in the text, presenting a completely solved problem, may be analyzed and broken down into its elements and into a rational order of procedure.
The material presented herewith represents, with the necessary and desirable problem assignments, a two-credit course. Two class periods of one hour and two drafting-room periods of two hours are sufficient to cover the ground in one sememster.« less
